DoubleTree Hotel, San Jose, CA

DVCon U.S. 2020 Virtual Follow-Up Conference

The technical program is now available online with some on demand recorded presentations, open to the public from June 17 – August 14.

The 2020 Design and Verification Conference and Exhibition has created an online version of its 32nd annual event. Due to travel issues related to the suddenly evolving COVID-19 pandemic last March, many of those that had registered in advance of the conference were unable to attend. The DVCon U.S. 2020 Steering Committee collaborated with presenters and organizers of sessions to create an online experience of the technical program.

The complete papers and presentations, including some with audio recordings, are now available to the public at https://2020.dvcon-virtual.org/.
